Don´t know where you found this, but (as far as I know) the word suffix is used to talk about words in the plural.
So, words ended with the suffix e/es are the ones in wich you use a "bare genitive" - just the ´ after the word. In this way girls would turn into girls´ (because of the suffix s)
and wife would turn into wife´s, if in the plural wive´s.
Take a look here
I´m afraid somebody confused suffix here with suffix in other grammar context. Read it and jumped to a conclusion out of context.
So, I think you might continue teaching English the way you do, don´t sweat it at all!
